Biography

Linett Kamala is a London based visual artist whose paintings merge abstraction with expressive hand script. She draws inspiration from calligraffiti and abstract expressionism, as well as artists such as Jose Parla, Niels Shoe Meulman, Jenny Holzer and Jean Michel Basquiat.

Presently she is creating work as part of her ‘State of Education’ project which documents aspects of the English school education system.  Elements of critique, celebration and comedy all overlap throughout her work. She sees it as an on-going artistic conversation about constantly learning within her environment, being resilient and open to change.

Her passion for enriching the lives of others through art, well-being and education is demonstrated by collaborations on creative projects with numerous organisations spanning over 30 years.

Her typical week is a mixture of painting in her studio, working on various education consultancy assignments, training senior school leaders and inspiring the next generation of artists through her art collective Lin Kam Art.   It is this mixture of interaction which informs and makes her work so relevant.

Linett studied at University of Arts London and University College London.

Her studio is based in Kilburn, northwest London.
